PLAN For Weekend Street Food Market On Central Glasgow Riverfront

CITY council officials are being asked to approve a street food market beside the Clyde in Glasgow City Centre.

It is proposed for the public open space at 1 to 5 Custom House Quay Gardens, between South Portland Street suspension bridge and Glasgow Bridge.

The licensed market would have capacity for 500 people — 100 seated and 400 standing and would operate every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from noon to 10pm over the summer. Accompanied children and young people would be permitted until 8pm.

As well as mobile street food trucks, food and drink would be served from two 20-foot, side-opening shipping containers located in the Tiger Mural area of the site. Pine decking would also be installed in the mural area. The containers would be in place from May to September.

The riverfront path would remain open — crowd barriers would be in place around the market.

A planning application submitted by Platform on the Broomielaw Market is pending assessment by the city council.
